The Genius of the Crowd
oil on canvas, 2008
74 by 74 in.

There is enough treachery, hatred,  Violence, Absurdity in the average human  Being To supply any given army on any given  day.  AND The Best At Murder Are Those  Who Preach Against It.  AND The Best at Hate Are Those  Who Preach LOVE AND THE BEST AT WAR – FINALLY – ARE THOSE WHO PREACH PEACE

Those Who Preach GOD NEED God Those Who Preach PEACE Do Not Have Peace.  THOSE WHO PREACH LOVE DO NOT HAVE LOVE BEWARE THE PREACHERS Beware The Knowers.


Beware Those Who Either Detest  Poverty Or Are Proud Of It

BEWARE Those Quick To Praise For They Need PRAISE In Return

BEWARE Those Quick To Censure: They Are Afraid Of What They Do Not Know

Beware Those Who Seek Constant Crowds; They Are Nothing Alone

Beware The Average Man The Average Woman BEWARE Their Love

Their Love Is Average; Seeks Average But there Is Genius In Their Hatred There Is Enough Genius In Their Hatred To Kill You, To Kill Anybody.

Not wanting Solitude Not Understanding Solitude They Will Attempt To Destroy Anything That Differs From Their Own

Not Being Able To Create Art They Will Not Understand Art

They Will Consider Their Failure As Creators Only As A Failure Of The World

Not Being Able To Love Fully They Will BELIEVE Your Love Incomplete  AND THEN THEY WILL HATE YOU

And Their Hatred Will Be Perfect Like A Shining Diamond Like A Knife Like A Mountain  LIKE A TIGER LIKE Hemlock

Their Finest ART
